You really can have it all.
Continental's X-King (pronounced 'cross king') 27.5 Inch is a jack of all trades, ready to rule the most varied trail conditions with ease. This ProTection version offers increased durability and hassle-free tubeless compatibility with minimal weight sacrifice. The newly developed tread pattern can do just about anything, blending features from the updated Mountain and Race King models for a tire that looks and acts aggressive, but rolls quickly. Rounded symmetrical knobs provide ample traction when braking and climbing, while protruding shoulder lugs grip like super glue on the corners without slowing you down on the straights.
The advanced Black Chili rubber compound performs exceptionally well, increasing grip and durability while lowering rolling resistance. The beefed-up ProTection casing features 4 fabric plies and a total of 240 TPI for extra durability. Finally, RTR tubeless technology means compatibility with UST and tubeless-ready rims when paired with Continental Revo Sealant.
Available in 27.5 x 2.2 Inch (55-584 ISO) and 27.5 x 2.4 Inch (60-584 ISO) sizes. Recommended pressure: 50 PSI. Max. pressure: 65 PSI. Folding bead. Handmade in Germany. Claimed weight: 620/690 grams.
